Here's my story. Purchased a used 04' SR in Dec. of 04'. While trying to cut a deal with the salesman, I notice on the shelf behind him, a black box with the R on it. It's a completely intact intro kit given to dealerships. It contains a poster, pin, 10 brochures, a sample of all paint and interior leather, a invitation to the driving seminar and a letter from Volvo explaining the contents. The date on the letter is in April of 03'. I end up having him throw the box in with the purchase of my baby. Most of these kits were probably broken up and various items distributed to customers and staff. My question is..Does anybody have some R memorabilia they want to share? I'd love to see some pics of other R items out there. Here are some of the kit.

Re: R memorabilia anyone? (wes3639)

That's really cool, I'd love to have an R poster like that, and to think that so many dealers simply just threw them all away. I'd also like to see some pics of your car if you have them!

It is sad that most of these probably did end up at a land fill.
I haven't taken any recent pics but plan on doing that this weekend too!
This site has a lot more R traffic on it than it used to years ago when I first joined.

I followed my passion, made of my hobby my work so I worked at a dealership ... but the company policy wanted more invoices with just 1 lightbulb instead of selling 5-6hrs on 1 repair/service invoice. So I left (and a few more reasons why I left). So I "took" the things in that picture home (the scalemodels I bought) ... the dealership had a few of those items so taking 1 of each they never felt (and I asked the salesman that ordered my R if I may have it)
the R-market is too little here


Ow, I swapped the interior of the flashgreen with the black -> I've a flashgreen with nordkap

Fortunately, that's one of the positive effects of depreciation. Hopefully in the coming years, there will be a lot more younger drivers who will buy R's and do some serious modding.

That's a lot of goodies!!! I have seen the cloth hang ups, but the other stuff, I've never seen. Nice memorabilia!

Re: R memorabilia anyone? (Papa_Kirlo)

I almost..... AMOST.... snagged an R watch on eBay two nights ago. I was $1 short, and the last second bid thing F'd me up. I was so mad. If it went to someone here though, I'll concede respectfully.
